We present a revised molecular phylogeny of higher Basidiomycota focusing on Lepidostromataceae based on the large subunit (28S) of the nuclear ribosomal rDNA (nuLSU), with additionl data from the translation elongation factor 1 alpha 1 (TEF1) and the RNA polymerase II second largest subunit (RPB2) genes. Our results suggest that Lepidostromataceae is best recognized in a separate order, Lepidostromatales ordo novum, within subclass Agaricomycetidae. Furthermore, the internal topology of… 
Circumscription and phylogeny of the Lepidostromatales (lichenized Basidiomycota) following discovery of new species from China and Africa
ABSTRACT Based on an exhaustive sampling of all known Lepidostromatales, a lineage of clavarioid lichen-forming basidiomycetes, we assess (i) the phylogenetic affinities of the six Chinese species
From one to six: unrecognized species diversity in the genus Acantholichen (lichenized Basidiomycota: Hygrophoraceae)
TLDR
A detailed morphological and anatomical study of recently collected specimens from the Galápagos, Costa Rica, Brazil and Colombia, combined with a molecular phylogenetic analysis of the internal transcribed spacer region and 28S of the nuc rDNA and RPB2 sequences, revealed a much more diverse and widespread species assemblage.
Bryoclavula phycophila gen. et sp. nov. belonging to a novel lichenized lineage in Cantharellales (Basidiomycota)
TLDR
Molecular sequence data of the large subunit of the nuclear ribosomal RNA gene showed that the species was placed in a new lineage in the order Cantharellales, clearly independent from the genus Multiclavula.
Two new, sympatric and semi-cryptic species of Sulzbacheromyces (Lichenized Basidiomycota, Lepidostromatales) from the Chocó Biogeographic Region in Colombia
TLDR
The utility of DNA barcoding for delimiting species in lichenized Basidiomycota from Colombia is examined, focusing on the genus Sulzbacheromyces (Lepidostromatales), including the six already known species S. caatingae from Brazil, S. miomboensis De Kesel & Ertz from Africa, and S. yunnanensis from Asia.
A hidden basidiolichen rediscovered: Omphalina oreades is a separate species in the genus Lichenomphalia (Basidiomycota: Agaricales: Hygrophoraceae)
TLDR
The most abundant algal ribosomal large subunit sequence from granules at the base of a different collection matched GenBank sequences identified as Chloroidium ellipsoideum, which is probably either a free-living algal species or a partner to a species of Trapeliopsis.
Five new species of Cora and Dictyonema (Basidiomycota: Hygrophoraceae) from Colombia: chipping away at cataloging hundreds of unrecognized taxa
TLDR
All new species of Cora fall into only one of the two major Cora clades and are not closely related to the morphologically most similar taxa.
Deconstructing the Tricholomataceae (Agaricales) and introduction of the new genera Albomagister, Corneriella, Pogonoloma and Pseudotricholoma
TLDR
A phylogeny of the Tricholomatoid clade based on nucleotide sequence data from two nuclear ribosomal RNA genes (large subunit and small subunit) and the second-largest subunit of RNA polymerase II (rpb2) is presented.
Sulzbacheromyces sinensis, an Unexpected Basidiolichen, was Newly Discovered from Korean Peninsula and Philippines, with a Phylogenetic Reconstruction of Genus Sulzbacheromyces
TLDR
The species worldwide distribution map of Lepidostromatales was illustrated, and S. sinensis had a widest distribution range (paleotropical extend to the Sino-Japanese) than other species (palesotropical or neotropical).
Ten new species of lichenized Basidiomycota in the genera Dictyonema and Cora (Agaricales: Hygrophoraceae), with a key to all accepted genera and species in the Dictyonema clade
TLDR
The taxonomic status of the six names historically established for species belonging in the genus Cora are discussed and reinstate the names C. pavonia (Sw.) Fr.

A new lineage of lichenized basidiomycetes inferred from a two-gene phylogeny: The Lepidostromataceae with three species from the tropics.
TLDR
A new family of basidiolichens made up of tropical, soil-inhabiting fungi that form lichenized, scale-like squamules and erect, coral-like fruiting structures is described, indicating similar pathways to lichenization in these fungi.
Unravelling the phylogenetic relationships of lichenised fungi in Dothideomyceta
TLDR
The generic concept in several groups is in need of revision, as indicated by non-monophyly of genera, such as Arthonia, Astrothelium, Cryptothecia, Cryptothelium, Enterographa, Opegrapha, and Trypethelium in the authors' analyses.
Unexpected discovery of a novel basidiolichen in the threatened Caatinga biome of northeastern Brazil
TLDR
The discovery of a new species of Lepidostroma from the semi-arid Caatinga biome in northeastern Brazil underlines the importance of this unique biome for conserving diversity in tropical South America and underlines that novel lichenized Fungi can be discovered in unusual habitats.
Perspectives in the new Russulales
TLDR
The Russulales is one of 12 major lineages recently elucidated by molecular sequence data in the homobasidiomycetes, containing a remarkable variety of sporophore forms from smooth, poroid, hydnoid, lamellate, to labyrinthoid and hymenophore configurations.
New lichenicolous, muscicolous, corticolous and lignicolous taxa of Burgoa s. l. and Marchandiomyces s. l. (anamorphic Basidiomycota), a new genus for Omphalinafoliacea, and a catalogue and a key to the non-lichenized, bulbilliferous basidiomycetes
TLDR
It is proposed to exclude Marchandiomyces aurantiacus from that genus and to use the holomorphic generic name Marchandiobasidium for both anamorph and teleomorph of this species.
Lepidostroma vilgalysii, a new basidiolichen from the New World
TLDR
The lichenized basidiomycete Lepidostroma vilgalysii from Mexico is described based on morphological analyses, and is one of the few described lichens with an inverted morphology, with the algae in a layer at the base of the thallus.
Phylogenetic relationships in Auriculariales and related groups: hypotheses derived from nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences
TLDR
The Sebacinaceae, including the genera Sebacina, Efibulobasidium, Tremelloscypha, and Craterocolla, was confirmed as a monophyletic group, which appeared distant from other taxa ascribed to the Auriculariales.
DIVERSITY AND PHYLOGENETIC PLACEMENT OF BRACTEACOCCUS TEREG (CHLOROPHYCEAE, CHLOROPHYTA) BASED ON 18S RIBOSOMAL RNA GENE SEQUENCE DATA 1
TLDR
It is premature to reclassify Bracteacoccus until 18S comparisons can be made with additional sphaeroplealean taxa and with algae with similar flagellar structure such as Dictyochloris and Heterochlamydomonas.
